Default Mushfiqur blames seamers for defeat

After conceding the high-scoring one-off Twenty20 in Pallekele, Bangladesh captain Mushfiqur Rahim criticised his bowlers' work ethic, and said it was time the country takes a proper look at the state of fast bowling.

"The bowlers have to work a lot harder," Mushfiqur said. "What they are doing right now, is not enough. I wouldn't entirely hold it against them but maybe the team management is to share the blame too.

"I would be guilty if I blamed just an individual. If our pace bowlers had backed up the other bowlers, we would have a slightly different series, especially in the Tests. We are giving them enough chances, but they are not giving us the results. Our next tour is to Zimbabwe where we can't experiment. It is a big series for us, so we have to come to a decision."
